Can Acupuncture treatments help with fertility?

Updated: Dec 2, 2020

There are so many things that we can do to make our bodies a better environment for

conception. Individualized acupuncture treatments are designed to regulate hormones,

decrease stress, and increase blood flow and circulation. Acupuncture has been proven to

decrease the chances of miscarriages and improve uterine receptivity via immune modulation.

Acupuncture is also helpful in decreasing the side effects from prescription medications that

assist in reproductive procedures (IVF, FET, IUI). Additionally, many of the hormone

fluctuations that create tearful mood swings and irritability can be better managed when getting

regular acupuncture treatments.

A healthy baby is the result of healthy sperm fertilizing a healthy egg and the baby being

nourished in a healthy uterine environment. I focus on helping women and their partners to be

as healthy as possible so the eggs and sperm can reach their peak fertility potential at the time

of conception. For those undergoing IUI without a partner, being sure the body is strong and

healthy will be a focus for the acupuncture treatments as they prepare for their big day. We will

talk about at home tips and tricks that can create a healthier you and a healthier home for baby!

These things can be easily incorporated into busy everyday lives!

Remember, pain with the menstrual cycle is not normal, nor is heavy bleeding. Our cycles

should be pain-free and regular. This is the first step in trying to grow your family or trying to find

some comfort in the monthly cycle.

Been struggling or know someone who has? Want help lowering stress levels before getting

pregnant? Want to feel more centered and grounded? Acupuncture can help to address all

things menstruation.
